Charts the internet's progress, from its invention in the 1960s to its present-day ubiquity, and covers false technological leads of the 1970s, the dot com boom and bust, and the rise of social networking. Ryan also analyses its impact on the balance of power between the state and the individual, and the issues of censorship and freedom of expression.


Johnny Ryan is Senior Researcher at the Institute of International and European Affairs, Dublin, where he leads the Digital Future programme.


'Both an enormously useful work and a great read. Read it and understand what has made the Internet different.'- Professor Tim Wu, Columbia Law School 'Thanks to the proliferation of cloud services, ubiquitous, low-cost bandwidth, and new devices like smartphones and the iPad, there are fewer obstacles to innovation than ever before. In the next decade, the 'office' need not be much more than an Internet connection. Johnny Ryan takes us through the history of the Internet to demonstrate how it has changed everything. But that's not all; he also identifies what's to come in the future. We are in a new era of transformation that has been powered by the Internet. Understanding the trends driving this revolution is pivotal to success. Consider this book your road map to getting there.' - Marc Benioff, Chairman and CEO of www.salesforce.com 'Johnny Ryan has admirably captured the sweep of the Internet's development from its earliest days, showing us how its profound impact is in part an accident of history, a phenomenon whose most interesting and liberating aspects could fade without reinforcement of its core values.' - Professor Jonathan Zittrain, Professor of Law, Harvard Law School and Kennedy School; Professor of Computer Science, Harvard SEAS; Author, The Future of the Internet - And How to Stop It
